2019 FINALISTS -  scroll down the page to READ ALL THE RULES.  **See the soundcheck list & time slots at the bottom of the page.

You will need two songs for the Championship Final - the combined time for your two songs can NOT go over the 6:30 time limit. Your score will be deducted two placements if you go over.

Any of the following music file extensions will be accepted: WAV, Mp3 (most common), AAC

Remember, your song MUST BE SUNG IN THE STYLE OF THE ORIGINAL ARTISTS - not an adaptation of a newer artist, or changing the arrangement to make it your style. We want your voice, of course.  Your file will be rejected & returned to you if IT IS NOT THE CORRECT VERSION. For example, a song that did not have a ukulele in the original song - we don't want it in your karaoke version!

Some songs can be sung by male or female - you would just switch some words around to make it appropriate for the gender the song is sung about. Example - her to him, girl to boy, Sue to Drew. We would like for you to perform your song in the style of the original artist.

     Wow! Last night was a fantastic night of entertainment at the Okanogan Virginia Grainger School. We had a packed house & the crowd was amazing cheering on each contestant & helping one with his song!

     After five hours of reviewing videos, some three or four times, we finally made a unanimous decision on our top fourteen finalists for the March 30th Championship Final at 6 PM which will be held at the Omak PAC on 20 S Cedar. The contestants really stepped it up AND we were pleasantly surprised by some of the performances. We saw so much growth in many of our contestants this year, especially the younger ones. This made our job extremely difficult – one of our hardest years – because of the closeness in scores.

     Along with the joy of selecting our top fourteen come the heartbreak of having to cut contestants that have become like family. Please don’t be discouraged. You are great people & we want you to continue to sing & perform which will only make you better performers. If any of you would like to sing in our summer shows, give Ed a call or text him to let him know of your interest.

     We hope all of our contestants had fun, & for those who are able, we hope you will return next year to share your talent with us all over again! And now here are your top fourteen!
